    Hi Friends,

    This is for all the BlackBerry aficionado; there is an interesting event on March 14th @ HackerDojo new office. BlackBerry Senior Enterprise Developer Shikhir will be coming down from LA, specially for this event to give us tips on Enterprise apps and Z10 in general.

    The room is big and there will be tons of food and BlackBerry device raffles. Make sure you do not miss this one, if you are looking at BlackBerry development in near future.

    From last meetup discussion, It appears that our group needs to agree on a clear distinction between NFC application in "payments" and in "transit" sectors. Moreso, because NFC usage in transit, has been hugely successful. while, in "payments" sector, NFC is gaining ground, quite slowly.

    To summarize, "transit" is like "fast-food", while "payments" is like "fine dining". At transit turnstile, speed of transaction is more important, and everybody eats the same food (or rides the same train) hence it is like fast food because the purpose is to grab a "fast" bite.

    "Payments" at shop counter is a different story where merchandise selection takes more time , and time taken by the actual transaction is less important. So, it is like "fine dining" because everybody selects, orders & savors "different food". So, "NFC usage in Transit" falls into the category of "Access Control". Yes, at best, it can be called a "pre-paid access control" like CTIA or CES entrance card.

    Here's a question: For the last decade or so, barriers to significant NFC adoption in mobile have had far more to do with business model issues than technical ones. Particularly some MNOs' desires to monetize NFC and secure credentials. What is Intel doing to create *open* or even free access to NFC for any developer for secure applications that is not dependent on MNOs?

    Looking forward to know more about Microsoft wallet. Incidently, I just completed an award-winning NFC App on Windows 8 platform.
